Receiving the Holy Spirit

Daily Thought

Your Word for 14 June 2024

Exodus 34:5
‘The LORD descended in a cloud and stood with him (Moses) there.’

On the Day of Pentecost, after the Holy Spirit had been poured out and after Peter had delivered his Spirit-anointed message the people asked, “WHAT SHALL WE DO?”  Peter responded by saying four things, namely

  1. REPENT,
  3. You will RECEIVE the gift of THE HOLY SPIRIT and
  4. SAVE YOURSELVES from this crooked generation

Years before, the Lord had promised through the prophet Joel,

“And it shall come to pass afterward, that I will pour out my Spirit on all flesh and (shall prophesy…dreams dreams…see visions”.

This prophecy was fulfilled on the Day of Pentecost as the 120 were filled with the Holy Spirit as is recorded in Acts chapter 2.  At that time Peter made it clear that it was not just for a select few, it was for everyone.  He went on to say,

“For the promise is unto you AND to your children, AND to all that are afar off, even AS MANY AS the Lord, our God, shall call”. (Acts 2:39)
